Set II is a smoker.It just takes off starting at the Scarlet>Fire and cooks for the rest of the show.

Subject: Cal Expo Spring '92
This show (opened up by Grisman if I remember correctly) was one of the fondest memories of all of my touring adventures. Who would of thought in 1992 you could score a ticket half hour before the show and see the Dead down at the fairgrounds. Can't believe it has been 15 years.I remember being at the concession stand when they broke into Baba O'Reily, hearing Vince and thinking that Roger Daltrey was on stage with the Boy's.
Thanks For The Memories!!!

Subject: Good memories
Wow! Does this bring back some wonderful memories of this great show at the best place to see the Dead (or any show)...the late Cal Expo in Sacramento. Tons of flat grass to dance and its surrounded by a U-shape raised general admission seating. The show was fun, it was a warm day/evening and this set is jammin'! The sound quality is amazing. So as I am wrapping up Christmas gifts this is the perfect show to have as background music!

Subject: Fabulous Estimated
This is a good recording and remastering of a very respectable GD performance featuring a titanic Estimated with Pharoah Sanders' ricochet sax, Immaculate Separation. A competent overall run of shows displaying ensemble playing and tactile awareness of one another. Vince is superb both playing and singing. I am compelled to reward this show a 5, even though it's not the one everybody talks about in whispered hush. Yet this show is so solid in performance and presentation that it warrants a five star recognition.

Subject: Not so fast
The best Standing On the Moon ever? The tempo is painfully slow, Garcia hacks the lyrics, and the music played in place of an entire verbal passage is at best alarmingly basic, if not completely uninspired. They could have launched Jesus Christ out of a cannon during this SOTM and it still would only be average.
Taking into consideration the band's playing and the quality of the recording this show deserves no more than 3 stars.

Subject: there must be some kind of way out of here...
i don't have this show yet but i am about to download it now....2 reasons...previous reviews, and 2nd the watchtower and sotm...years ago i had a tape that had these 2 versions on it as a filler and i remember always listening to it just b/c of this filler...the watchtower is by FAR the best version i have ever heard...watchtower is not one of my fav songs but this version actually ranks as one of my fav dead tunes of all time...bobby starts out by just ROARING the lyrics...liek he isnt even human...like he is yelling it so all the universe can hear...just unbelievable...really hits your soul...i also believe the sotm was good too....if u like bobby giving his all...get this...i'm 5 staring it for now

Subject: Was there
Yeah I will never forget this concert, it was the first "dead" experience I had and continued to see them all through the 90's, but always remembered this show because all my friends had this show on tape at every other dead sow after that. I moved on to Phish by 97. But I will never forget, it was like 100 degrees that day, I took some mushrooms and enjoyed the night sky amazed at the whole hippy exprience. It was the end of my senior year and I WAS FREE!!!! A

Subject: Best Set Ever!!!!
Holy cow if you don't appreciate the Dead in the 90's you are sorrily mistaken. Get this show at all costs. This was one of my first analog tapes I ever got. My roomate met a guy with a wall of tapes. 5000 + tapes all GD. My roomate picked 10 tapes out of Deadbase and he had 9 of them. 5-21-92 set 2 is what the guy picked out as tape # 10 and it has remained my favorite ever since. One of my top 3 Scarlet> Fire if not top. High energy the whole way through the second set. Wow, the best Standing on the Moon ever! He forgets a verse and never looks back. The most feeling and emotional jamming and singing during the climax of this, it's inspiring. And the sound of this recording is incredible. You can hear Jerry's fingers slide on the strings and Phil is so crisp. Get this at all costs!!!! I am getting teared up now listening to it, too many electric nights with this as the soundtrack to not feel this right to the bones! Just stream this and skip to track #7, you will download before it's over! 6 STARS!!!
